Penalty of cross numa node is minimal with higher interrupt coalescing
used in h/w.  We see penalty of cross numa traffic for lower IOPs type
work load.
In this particular case we are taking care cross numa traffic via higher
interrupt coalescing.

I assuming you are refereeing spreading msix to all numa node the way
"pci_alloc_irq_vectors" does.

Having extra 16 reply queue spread across nodes will have negative impact.
Take example of 8 node system (total 128 logical cpus).
If  16 reply queue are spread across numa node, there will be total 8
logical cpu mapped to 1 reply queue (eventually one numa node will have
only 2 reply queue mapped).

Running IO from one numa node will only consume 2 reply queues.
Performance dropped drastically in such case.  This is typical problem
with cpu-msix mapping goes to N:1 where msix is less than online cpus.

Mapping extra 16 reply queue to local numa node will always make sure that
driver will round robin all 16 reply queue irrespective of originated cpu.
We validated this method sending IOs from remote node and did not observed
performance penalty.

One more clarification -

I am using " for-4.19/block " and this particular patch "a0c9259
irq/matrix: Spread interrupts on allocation" is included.
I can see that 16 extra reply queues via pre_vectors are still assigned to
CPU 0 (effective affinity ).

Ideally, what we are looking for 16 extra pre_vector reply queue is
"effective affinity" to be within local numa node as long as that numa
node has online CPUs. If not, we are ok to have effective cpu from any
node.
